Jebb Mac Band
The Jebb Mac Band is the perfect way to punctuate a warm Southern beach day of sun-soaked friends and iced-cool drinks. Like a hurricane, they release their energy to a packed crowd at a laid back watering hole, with raucous covers ranging from Johnny Cash to Eminem, and original tunes evoking lazy river days and hot Southern nights.
Jebb Mac launched full-bore into the music industry as a member of Justin Smith & the Folk-Hop Band – a dynamic 8-piece from Columbia, SC. While with his former band, Jebb Mac toured with and opened for such national acts as Snoop Dogg, Collective Soul, Rehab, Bubba Sparxxx, Nappy Roots, and more. Ultimately deciding to branch off on his own, Mac released 2 solo albums (Alcohol & Agony and The Suburban Chronicles) before eventually putting together his own band.
Led by Jebb Mac on vocals and rhythm guitar, the Jebb Mac Band features Emery Henderson (trombone, vocals), Emma Hamilton (keys, vocals), Tyler Roberts (lead guitar, vocals), Nelson James (drums), Jeff Springs (bass, vocals) and Don Colton (saxophone).
The band already has one album release under their belt, Business As UNusual, produced by Cory Plaugh; and recorded, mixed, and mastered at Plaugh's House Recording Studio (Irmo, SC). The album features the singles “Inner Tube” and “Buzz On,” which have garnered the attention of regional country and country crossover radio stations. They have recently been in the studio in Nashville, TN with Grammy-nominated producer Kent Wells. Their new single release, “Sip of That,” evokes warm memories of an enchanting summer romance.
While the foundation of its sound is country-oriented, the Jebb Mac Band manages to cross over genres by adding elements of funk, hip hop, pop, and rock. Throw in his brass section and it’s as if Bruno Mars, the Zac Brown Band, and Thomas Rhett were all part of the same band. Myrtle Beach’s Surge calls Jebb Mac Band’s live shows “dance-friendly, party-friendly,” appealing to “young audiences and young-at-heart fans who crave variety.”
Through his music, Jebb Mac intends to break down the walls and barriers that separate musical genres. Each member of the Jebb Mac Band projects his and her own diverse musical influence; and Jebb Mac melds those influences into a sound that appeals to just as diverse an audience. Whether they’re singing about kicking back some beverages after a long work week, reminiscing about lost love, or just floating the day away down a river on an inner tube, the Jebb Mac Band creates universal appeal, infusing every song they play with their unique brand of energy, angst, and relief.
